    Hi I'm looking at getting some paint for my a3, the sticker says lz5c/lz5c when I google that i can't get a straight answer, that paint code is bringing up..
    •Ocean blue
    •mauratisblau
    •mauratis blue
    •mauratis blue pearl
    Lz5c/2y

    I can't get my head around what my car actually is because of all this confusion over that code. Can anyone on here help? ImageUploadedByTapatalk1399925017.862452.jpg

    Not a lot of help I'm sure, but mine in pic is definitely Mauritius blue pearl if that helps by comparison! Yours looks slightly duller but that may just be the light? I'm probably talking **** here but isn't the paint option code in amongst the rest of the option codes if you out that into a translator, I can't remember if I saw my paint option when I tried that one time but I thought I had!

    Was your paint code lz5c on the stickers or did it state that its pearl some how with another code? That's what's confusing me. I just need sumone to confirm lz5c is bog standard mauritis blue. Or does that code cover pearl and metalic?

    If I remember correctly, it is pearlescent. Do you just need a touch-up kit?

    If that is the code on your car then the paint you get mixed will be right. The names can vary. Some people get confused between pearl and metallic.

    Just give the company your code and they will give you the correct paint.
